Here you can find some kind words left to us by guests visiting the hotels:
Cathedral Quarter Hotel
Hi, just wanted to say a big thank you from my wife and myself having had a wonderful pedicure and afternoon tea. I thought all your staff were attentive, professional and friendly.
The quality and atmosphere in the parts of the hotel I saw were luxurious and first class. And the pedicure left me feeling wonderfully pampered, a special thank you to Abbey who I thought was fantastic.
Thank you again for a wonderful day."
"To whom it may concern,
My dear friend *** married *** on 27th June.
We had the reception at your hotel and the bride and the brides maids (one of which is me) stayed in room 23 the night before the wedding. I have a few points I wish to raise...
Firstly, the management who greeted us at check in and all the reception staff we dealt with were... lovely.
Secondly,the gentleman who was decorating the room for us and had only been there 3 days, him and the team did a fantastic job. Great work. Thank you
Thirdly, the cleaners and reception staff who put up with us, mainly me, back and forth invading your office, asking for various things including cups and glasses, and putting up with seeing me with out make up and my hair in curlers, yeah, sorry about that :)
Finally, over all the whole experience was made even more pleasant by the members of staff. All of which were polite, friendly and so helpful and welcoming, we couldn't of asked for a better service to make all the stress of a wedding so much easier.
The whole day went so smoothly and the room was amazing. The breakfast won too, great tea! And thank you for allowing us to throw confetti everywhere.. sorry to who ever had to clean that up. I know I speak on behalf of everyone involved, including the bride and groom.
Donington Manor Hotel
"When I arrived a very warm and friendly welcome the food was very good, dinner and breakfasts. All the staff members very helpfull and polite. The room was very clean and kept clean. Each night care was taken to tidy my notes but not messed up, clean towles offered.
When you met any member a lovly smile and every request was responded to very quickly. The manager came to introduce himself (rather than hide as most hotel managers) The meeting room was kept clean and all teas and coffes served on agreed times. A great stay and a thank you to all the team."
I just wanted to write and say thank you for all your help in making our day last Saturday so wonderful. The food was magnificent with the pork wellington being a particular triumph. Actually, the meringue was awesome as was the strarter so too hard to pick a favourite! When Sophie and I did a quick round of the tables before the speaches, praise for the food was a common theme so please pass our thanks to chef! Also, your team was excellent and kept our glasses nicely topped all day! Moreover, I wanted to thank you for removing any potential stress around food/drink. Irrespective of the excellent endorsement from Ros and Phil, from the tasting day forward Sophie and I were extremely confident of the success which you delivered. Many thanks again."
"Please pass on our sincere thanks to James for his fantastic catering last night at the De Montfort Hall. So many people commented on the delicious food and there was plenty of it with lots of wonderfully helpful staff and lots to drink. All just perfect! Ten out of ten - Finesse lives up to its reputation again!
David and I send our sincerest thanks to James for taking charge of everything and helping to make the evening run so smoothly – first class job!"
"Our private chef experience was exceptional – wonderful food and attentive service all without leaving the house. It's talked about frequently amongst our friends and I'm sure will be for a long time to come".
"We had the finesse experience for our silver wedding anniversary. The staff arrived promptly and after a short induction into my kitchen we were able to leave the kitchen and concentrate on relaxing and getting ready for the evening
The table was set , champagne on arrival for guests was served by the waitress. The food was fantastic and we were able to accommodate vegetarian guests.
An excellent evening which finished with my kitchen clean and tidy and me not having to lift a finger"
Amazing value for money
